San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
Beginning August 8, 2012 through September 8, 2012, My will donate to Best Buddies 50% of proceeds from all purchases made at http://www.makemyyours.com.
My also is a sponsor of the September 8, 2012 Best Buddies Challenge: Hearst Castle and a member of "Team Maria," a team of cyclists and runners at the Best Buddies Challenge: Hearst Castle, led by the event’s honorary chairwoman Maria Shriver.
Best Buddies is an international non-profit dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The funds My donates will help support Best Buddies’ programs for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Best Buddies’ programs positively impact nearly 700,000 people with and without disabilities worldwide.
My’s founder and CEO, Tessa Yutadco, said, “I am grateful that My is in a position to support Best Buddies. My late sister had cerebral palsy, and I know she would have benefited immensely from Best Buddies’ tremendous work for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Through this partnership, My also is joining an important movement to expand the definition of beauty and promote a society in which people are more accepting of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
Founded on the belief that true beauty stems from total wellness, My™ is a socially responsible company that delivers highly effective skin care products to empower women by enhancing their beauty, vitality and confidence. My launched its first line of five skin care products, My Prime, in March 2012. For more information about My, please visit http://www.makemyyours.com or email info(at)makemyyours(dot)com.
